I started working on this project in the beginning of January. Actually, I didn’t know it would turn into a project at first, but when I finished my first portrait I thought ‘Why not?’. I need something to do when I’m not studying, to occupy my mind with something else. I am right now in a state where I just want to graduate. So this is a project to soothe my inner self. And also, as some of you may know, I bought a new digital tablet recently and I thought it would be nice to use it for something…
So, what is this project of mine you wonder? Well, to describe it as simply as I can – I am going to draw as many characters from The Hobbit as I can. And later on, when I am satisfied with the portraits I have, I will make a book out of them all and send a copy to the man I admire most in this world – Mr. Armitage himself. As a thank you for bringing the creative me to the surface.
I still have 5 more dwarves, a certain hobbit, some elves and other creatures to draw, but these are the ones I’ve done so far…
The Goblin King
It does take about 2-3 hours per portrait, and I only have the time at night to do them. It’s a slow process, but I try to make time to do them because I really enjoy it. Something I want to include in this project also is some … nature, landscapes and such as well.
I have started working on a piece from Rivendell, But I don’t have time to finish that one right now since I rarely work with colours and that process is even more difficult. But I do have a break from school soon so maybe I can finish it then. Here is the work in progress anyway.
I hope you guys like the project I’m working on.
